# A plane electromagnetic wave travels in vacuum along z-direction. What can you say about the directions of its electric and magnetic field vectors? If the frequency of the wave is 30 MHz, what is its wavelength?

Given: The electromagnetic wave travels in vacuum along z-direction

The direction of electric field vector and magnetic field vector will be in XY plane.

Frequency of the wave = 30 MHz

Converting into Hz, v = 30× 106 Hz.

Wavelength of the wave can be calculated using the following relation:

λ = c/v

λ = 10 m
